hi ladies, advice on spellings, for a boy, I like the name Zakariyya, but wanted some advice on the spelling, I want to spell it like this;
Zakaria - would you pronounce this differently?

I want it to be pronounced ‘Zak-a-riy-yah’
But worry that the spelling Zakaria will make people pronounce the end as ‘Reea’ as oppose to ‘riyyah’

Other options for spelling would be;
- Zacharia
- Zackaria

I’m not keen on a Y in the name

Thoughts?
Xx
 
The way you want to spell it I read it as ‘Reea’
How you want the name pronounced is best to spell it ‘yah’ as I think you will forever be correcting people on how to actually say your child’s name.
 
I think Zachariah is the way most people spell it, like the actor in Supernatural. Like @chattychar1990 said, your spelling makes me think it's pronounced "reeah" instead "rahya".x
 
Yup, Zachariah is the correct spelling. Not a ‘y’ to be seen :)
